CONCERTO FOR GROUP AND ORCHESTRA, feat. BRUCE DICKINSON or Bruce Dickinson, supergroup and the Philharmonic Orchestra play not only Deep Purple hits – 2. 4. 2023 – OLOMOUC, Palacký University hall

April of next year will bring one huge musical treat! When we mention JON LORD's name, the hearts of all true rockers begin to tremble with excitement. When this founding member of the famous DEEP PURPLE decided to leave in 2002 after 34 years in the band, it surprised many fans, but Jon Lord, devoted to classical music, only wanted to devote himself fully to this passion and his solo projects.

One of them is CONCERTO FOR GROUP AND ORCHESTRA. This famous project was born in his head already at the end of the sixties, i.e. at the time of the most famous line-up of DEEP PURPLE (Jon Lord, Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Richie Blackmoore, Roger Glover) and he even managed to realize it with the band very early on. It premiered in September 1969 in London, in the famous Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

This piece of music is an excellent example of the perfect combination of classical music with rock's dynamic charge. JON LORD ended up gaining huge success worldwide with this project. On the 30th anniversary of the premiere, in 1999 the project was revived again at the Royal Albert Hall, in 2002 it was released on DVD and in 2011 it was revised.

Now you can look forward to this famous and completely unique musical project in the Czech Republic! Conducting by Paul Mann (who has been working in the project since 1999) and with the great voice of BRUCE DICKINSON (IRON MAIDEN) behind the microphone, on April 2nd, 2023, at the Palacký University hall in OLOMOUC!  

Together with the Philharmonic orchestra, you can also look forward to such names as, in addition to the already mentioned Bruce Dickinson (vocals), Kaitner Z. Doka (Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Don Airey) - guitar, Bernhard Welz (Jon Lord, Don Airey) - drums, Tanya O'Callaghan (Whitesnake) – bass or John O'Hara (Jethro Tull) – keyboards.

Besides already mentioned Bruce Dickinson (on vocals) you can look forward to such names as Kaitner Z. Doka (Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Don Airey) - guitar, Bernhard Welz (Jon Lord, Don Airey) - drums, Tanya O'Callaghan (Whitesnake) – bass or John O'Hara (Jethro Tull) – keyboards and all this accompanied by the 78-member Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra Zlín.
